Our Climate Restoration Approach
We're a nonprofit dedicated to slowing down the melting of Arctic ice and working to restore it. Our researchers have spent 10 years creating, testing and refining eco-friendly floating glass spheres that act as a reflective layer on the Arctic ice. These spheres are 100% safe for humans, animals, aquatic life, and ecosystems. Once dispersed in limited, strategic locations they can restore the Arctic's natural heat shield, rebuild its wildlife habitats, and help stabilize global climate in the region. Like a white shirt on a hot summer day, our material reflects heat, protecting the ice below. Learn more about our material here.
The Arctic Ocean has lost 95% of its oldest ice
Over the past three decades of global warming, the oldest and thickest ice in the Arctic has declined by a devastating 95%, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s 2018 Arctic Report Card. The annual report card offers a glimpse into the worldwide impact of our melting polar ice caps. NOAA made note of the Arctic temperature increases, sea ice loss, caribou and wild reindeer declines, and harmful toxic algal blooms, which kills marine life.

An iceless Arctic by summer 2030
The Arctic and its ice cap, which is warming 2x as fast as the rest of the world, act as a global heat shield. This means that an ice-free Arctic has serious consequences for global temperature rise and weather patterns. It’s critical that we act as quickly as possible to prevent further ice loss, which is why we are rapidly scaling our Arctic testing every year.
After extensive field testing, we now have the technology, the team, and the experience needed to stabilize the climate and avoid the worst impacts of climate change, buying us more time to adopt sustainable solutions like renewable energy, electric transport, and carbon reduction.
